Vintage Mother's Day

It feels like an age since I got inky and collaged some stamps together. This has to be one of my absolute favourite ways of using ink and stamps as the results are always unique. I really enjoyed mixing and matching these stamps from various sets and makes. I then sponged in Blushing Bride pink (SU) and distressed the edges. I double cut the sentiment label with the new Framelits again from SU.

 Other Details:

 Stamp Sets: Res Des Fleurs (SU), Very Vintage (SU), Happiness Shared (SU), Tea Shoppe (SU),Shabby French (Stampers Anonymous).
 Ribbon and Lace: Lace from grandmas stash :-), peach seam binding from Vintage Page Designs.
 Inks: Blushing Bride, Concord Crush, Crumb Cake, Perfect Plum, Silver Smooch.

 I'm entering this card into the following Challenges:
  Just Add Ink Mother's Day
  Stampman Challenge favourite Technique
  Unruly Paper Arts Use Lace

 Have a great week everyone.

What a beautiful collage stamp, not a favourite of mine, the stamp set that is, but I think you have made it more appealing. Thanks for joining in with our challenge this week at Just Add Ink.
